Terrariums aren’t the only way to dye your terrarium, though.
Tie dye has been a very popular option for decades, and now many people are experimenting with it as a way to improve their terrarium.
Terrarium designers and hobbyists are taking it one step further by creating their own unique ways to color their terraria.
We recently interviewed designer Paul Stacey, who recently opened a new shop in London called Tie Dye Kitchen, to find out more about tie dye and what it’s all about.
Stacey has been using tie dye for years, starting in his kitchen and eventually branching out to make it available to the public.
He said that he started out as a hobbyist when he was younger, but then he realized that a lot of people didn’t have the time to make their own.
He says that the biggest challenge was finding a supplier that would let him dye his terrarium without spending hours and hours making a dye that’s not a real product.
“I’ve been trying to find a supplier who will make me tie dye in a way that I can actually use it,” he said.
“When I get a request for dye I’ll be able to dye it in a few minutes, but for some reason when I get the request for a dye to go into a cake, it takes forever.”
“The process is very time consuming, but I think people want to be able for themselves to have that sort of control over what they’re doing in terms of how they want to use the dye.”
Stacey’s shop will feature custom-made tie dye cakes for anyone to make and sell.
The cakes will have special instructions on how to dye their terraces, including what types of colors they need, how to prepare the cakes, and how to store them.
Stacey says that people can dye their own cakes, but they want the cakes to be different than what you’re used to.
“A lot of times people don’t even know that there’s tie dye involved,” he explained.
“They’re just seeing a cake and thinking it’s a cake of tie dye, and that’s it.”
He said that people don’st really know how to make tie dye cake because they don’t know how the dye works.
“So when you buy a cake it’s basically just a piece of paper that you fold into a square shape,” he told Ars.
“You’re making a cake in the kitchen, and then you’re making the cake in a cake shop, and you’re baking it and decorating it and you know it’s going to look a certain way.
But when you take it to the cake shop and buy it, it’s just a paper cake with no instructions on what it looks like.”
Stace has tried to make his cakes look different than a lot the tie dye that you might see in a store, and he said that the cakes are actually very easy to make.
“We put together a recipe that you can actually do yourself,” he shared.
“Just buy a piece that is a piece, a piece.
Then, if you’re doing this in your kitchen, just put it on your terrace.
Just fold it up and just stick it in the terrarium.”
In addition to the tie-dye cakes, the shop also sells other products like tie dye kits, a variety of dyes that Stacey is selling as tie dye.
Stacy told Ars that tie dye kit prices are often very high, but he doesn’t mind the price, because he believes that it’s the product that people want.
“Because tie dye really takes a little bit of time to get the job done, I think it’s worth it to me because it’s really good,” he noted.
“It really does make the job a lot easier.”
Stacy has a lot more products in the works, but it’s not yet clear when Tie Dyes Kitchen will open.
He is currently selling his tie dye tea, and plans to continue to expand his business through a new location.
“The more you get into it, the more I want to see it expand,” he says.
“But right now I’m just going to focus on Tie Dys.
I have to keep working on it, but right now it’s doing very well.”
Stacing also shared that he plans to open a second shop called Tie-Dye-Kitchen in London, which will allow customers to dye in the UK, as well as around the world.
“Right now it looks very difficult to get hold of,” he acknowledged.
“People don’t seem to know where to buy tie dye at all.
So I think we need to try and find some sort of distribution system, and the more people who buy tie-dyed cakes, then we’ll hopefully have a lot better luck.”
